October Owls #Handmade #Folksy

October Owls today. As usual there were so many wonderful creations that it was quite a job to pick and choose. Made a little easier by my determination to have as much variety as possible. So many new listings and so many tempting things. I do find myself looking and working out who could have what for Christmas. I have been buying steadily through the summer months and must sort through all my goodies before I buy more. I don`t want to end up with three pressies for one person and none for someone else. I confess that I have done that before in previous years. I used to see things in the city and buy for different people, then get home and tuck them away. several trips later I would have loads of things for the ladies and none for the guys. Ooooops!
Had to go into the city yesterday, a last minute present for a party I had forgotten about. Well I hadn`t forgotten the party, I thought I had another couple of weeks to go. Very annoying as I prefer to get my gifts from the handmade sector now.
I needed to buy yarn to finish off a pair of mittens and sort of accidentally bought two more lots. The gorgeous deep red shaded yarn and a turquoise, oh dear, there is no hope for me. I should be using my stocks not getting more.
Picked my 3rd grandson up from school and as my hubby likes to leave so early, I got half an hours crochet done in the car, while we waited and more done last night, the new all in one is almost done. Then it will be finishing the mittens.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Yesterday the sun shone bright,
it was such a lovely sight.
But there was really quite a chill
that certainly didn`t a thrill.
It was such a very busy day
because at the start I lost my way.
Got up late still too tired,
went to bed far too wired.
Then a headache slowed me down
certainly gave me a frown.
Fresh air helped it to recede
from the pain I was nearly freed.
I just wanted to sit and dream
but the whole day did seem
to rush along helter skelter
in a very mad welter
of busyness and things to do
no time to sit and enjoy the view.
Never mind, such is life
all part of being a mother and wife.
I much prefer to be busy
it keeps my life a bit fizzy!!
